2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Bottle (bought at the brewery): Dark amber coloured, huge rocky brownish head, very long lasting; only shy malty nose with some fruity traces, too, and - yes - a touch of "cellulose-thinner" ! Weak sweetish maltiness in the beginning, slight bitter-malty taste, distinctive bitterness (cacao, chocolate) in the longer lasting finish; not bad, but rather thin for a 13° (5,2% ABV) brew, only small aroma....and brewed by the use of an ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER ("s umelym sladitlem") ! Presumable the reason for this cellulose-thinner aroma ?

Tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Aroma almost nonexistent, watery. Taste mostly coffee, light sugary caramel. Clear cola colour, off-white head, full duration. Finish is light coffee bitter. It is in the neutral grey industrial zone.

The bottle looks good, but the coloures should be combinded better. There’s not much foam in the glass. The beer starts very vapid, becomes a little bit drier in the middle, but the finish in nearly washy. An average beer.

Dark brown body with massive head. The brewery is known Tetrahop isoextract to maintain a good head. Aroma is clean and malty, ittle bit sour. I can feel the oxidation in the taste, checking the bottle the beer is 10 days before end of the warranty, so should be still drinkable. Candy sweetness with sour and hoppy after-taste. Smooth body. I’m looking forward to the ontap version.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark burgundy sheet sends mineral and vegetables warnings. Something might be off. A little sweetness pierces through, but this is not appealing.
A frothy feel offers light roastiness, shy caramel, licorice and fruity shadows. Nothing’s off here thankfully. Barely any aftertaste, this bottle is mainly watery and bland, and moreover light years away from their ingeniously different and tasty Rytir Bitter.
Buying bread that looked good and discovering that it was just swollen with air.

(on tap) Dark brown, slightly hazy, head is brownis and stable. Aroma of roasted malts, metallic, malt beer. Nothing exciting or especially appealing. bittersweet taste. No aftertaste. Boring.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Doggythedog (thanks!)
Reddish/brown coloured, medium to big pale beige head, mild roasty nose. Roasted malt, brown sugar and some faint fruityness. Touch of caramel in the finish. Watery palate. According to label this one is "Beer of Czech Republic 2009". My vote is against.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a frothy, moderately durable head, Moderately roasted aroma with some coffee, caramel, dark chocolate and some vinous elements. Taste is only slightly sweet in the finish, coexisting with a light bitterness. Moderately roasted taste with moderate caramel-coffee-chocolate elements. Everything about this beer is moderate and forgettable.
